Abstract : This is a literature review relevant to the automated design of flight paths for low-flying military aircraft in terrain following and terrain avoidance roles. Improvements in computer technology continue to widen the range of approaches which may be applied to this important problem. In particular, there is interest in the application of techniques which use elements of artificial intelligence.
